I recently visited the East Coast for a GM sponsored introduction to the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze. In addition to driving the turbo 1.4L Cruze, I was also able to drive the Toyota Corolla S and Honda Civic for comparison. As always, I was very rushed and I apologize for the sloppiness that is my video style. Hopefully you are able to get something from this. A written review will be forthcoming. General Motors covered my expenses to attend this media preview.

GM's 1.4L Ecotec turbo airflow animation
2011 Chevrolet Cruze -- 40 + mpg highway and finally getting out ahead of
the competition with GM's homegrown hard work and good design.
Ecotec 1.4L turbo Airflow -- Almost 140
HP worth of performance from just 1.4L displacement thanks to turbo-charging.
Outside air is drawn into the intake air box by the turbocharger compressor wheel. The compressor
wheel is being driven by hot Exhaust
gases coming out of the Exhaust
manifold. The air is forced through an Intercooler by the compressor wheel and
then travels to the intake manifold. The intake manifold distributes the
air to the cylinders where fuel is added and the combustion process takes
place. A wastegate opens to regulate the compressor drive power by letting
excess Exhaust gases escape through
the Exhaust pipe.
The turbocharger's on-demand performance
in the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze is like having two engines in the same vehicle
-- one for fuel economy and one for power.
Proper sizing of the turbocharger allows
the small 1.4L engine to sip fuel under lighter driving conditions because
the extra turbo power, normally
associated with a larger sized engine, is held in reserve.
